For simplicity and caution, in the case of multiple variants of a fruit, the variant with the higher GL/GI has been included in this table. Please pay attention to the portion size, which is important. These items have been included in this list due to their having a low to low-moderate Glycemic Load. Please however test your blood sugar and gauge your body's unique response to these foods before continued consumption to ensure they work for you. Please also note, this list may not be complete. Please look up the Glycemic Index of foods you wish to eat or believe are safe if they're not included in this table. If the Glycemic Load is 10 or below, they're probably alright for diabetics.
